Re: Whoopsie - Made a COSHH Trainer walk out.

I''m sorry but I've watched this post from afar for a while and the post title is just not right. Whilst the sentiments may have been right, the way it was done, IMHO, was not. There were surely more appropriate and effective ways to do it. If nothing else, had you been wrong (heaven forbid), then t...

Re: Claiming money back if possible on courses

If you funded the course yourself, and didn't previously have a grant, then the cost is down to you. As a self employed person you could have offset some against tax, alas you show that you are employed elsewhere and it may be asked how or why it is relevant for you. It would also lead to do a self ...

Re: Seatbelt and mobile phone use surveys: 2017

Waterbaby, that was what I meant. This is an official survey and will be quoted for some time to come as a source of FACTS. Our perception may be disjointed or the survey may be. That was my point as well. It really depends on where the survey is/was taken and all sorts of other factors, but I assum...

Re: Seatbelt and mobile phone use surveys: 2017

I think what it is saying of the 1.1% of all drivers seen with mobile device (using/holding), the 0.1% is everything else other than a car driver. I love valued and well reasoned surveys.

Re: First Aider access to medical records

In broad terms doesn't it depend on the company setup, layout, distribution of FA / workers etc rather than trying to pin down if they could or should have been primed about medical records. Many cases could be reasoned that it may be good to pre-empt the FA of an individuals medical records as much...

Re: Could a Local Authority find this happening?

Okay, so the section of road is signed as a no through and no vehicle route - I think that is what we are saying That means either they failed to pass the relevant local legislation and/or included an exemption for the farm vehicles. Putting up the gate was a silly move. Imagine all the other roads ...

Re: Could a Local Authority find this happening?

Lets get this fictional case right. A section of road has signage that says no motor vehicles is a no though road (usually a dead end) and that a motor vehicle was making a right turn to go onto that no through road. Why was or is there a need for a locked gate? Lots of roads have those signs but no...

Re: Water/Foam Extinguishers in Freezing Temps.

May I hopefully glean some comments with a similar theme for foam extinguishers (not wishing to create 2 similar posts or to hijack either) - currently dealing with a site where they are shown as working to -16 degrees but it is closer to -20 degrees or colder with the wind, albeit for short periods...

Re: Grease extraction System

I'd agree with Witsd (Above) about cleaning, inspecting etc regularly. Perhaps if there is no scheduled system in place, you could start off with an arbitry period, let's say 3 month, if its still clean / operating correctly then extend to 4 months and so forth with a caveat that the maximum period ...

Re: Consultancy

I tend to use T&Cs that are brief and deal only with the contract and payments - its brief but lays out who we/they are, what is being offered as a service (consultancy) and that the client will make payment within agreed timescales and any get out clauses or penalties they/I may incur. If the contr...

Re: Consultancy

Messy - on the button on being self employed, it suits some and not others,
For my quick input, doing it as a side line may not do you, the client or current role justice.
